WHO WE ARE
Our founder Paul trained as an engineer and then industrial designer and used his skills to improve many companies, from well known mobile phone networks, to supermarket brands, to consumer electronics manufacturers - and even the NHS!
Until recently, he ran a service design and innovation company that married a sustainable approach to business by bringing principles from art and science together.
Two years ago he started to focus on the UK energy industry, convinced he could create a better solution for homeowners and the environment... the result is We Are Energy.
We recognise that many homeowners would like to install solar panels and make use of the latest technologies like battery storage but don't have the savings or access to the cash to pay for them. So, we've launched a new co-operative to overcome this barrier.
We Are Energy Co-operative Limited is an organisation united by a vision: to offer at no upfront cost* to cover every roof in the UK, so that all their surfaces are capturing solar energy to provide for a sustainable, clean and healthy environment for all.
* No Upfront Cost means you pay nothing for our standard solar generation and battery store system.
We choose to put others first and care for the well-being of our planet and its people, both now and in the future.
We accelerate new and sustainable solutions for the world's biggest problems.
We work together with individuals, communities and partners locally and around the world to make a tangible difference.
Our mission is to build a co-operative that serves to ensure its people, partners and customers can share positive actions that help to protect our planet and deliver our vision.
We’ll do that initially by covering every roof in the UK, so that all their surfaces can generate electricity using solar photovoltaic panels. We will develop tools and services to help our members use the energy they need in the most caring, creative and collaborative ways - helping to reduce energy consumption and energy costs for all.
In the future we want to include the planting of food gardens and systems to help contribute to cleaning the air we breathe, storing carbon and helping bring down the temperature.
Together with other committed organisations, we will help to build greener, smarter places to live: at home, at work and when we are out and about. A world we are proud to leave for the next generation.
We're already planning many exciting new ways to help the wider society — like donating energy to help prevent energy poverty for example.
Now is the time. Act with us.

We received our co-operative society regulated status from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority in 2020 on the basis that we'll give an equal voice to all our members to help decide on our future. This includes our staff, our paying user members and consumer members - like their families - as well as our partners who help us to deliver the services we offer. Our membership is voluntary and open to all our stakeholders.
We are a business driven by values (caring, creative and collaborative) not by the payment of capital. It's no coincidence that we are launching in 2020. No longer can we sit back and wait for others to make things better for our children or soothe our conscience on the sofa of ethical consumerism. This is the decade to be active and intentional in our choices, to make our world a better place with clarity of purpose and positive action.
Together we are inspired to face the climate crisis and acknowledge the impact of our actions on the sustainability of our planet.
We support the United Nations sustainable development goals, especially Goal 7 that aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern renewable energy.
